Abstract

Changing gender relations has meant that young people increasingly expect to share paid work and care in their relationships. Yet there is continued evidence of ‘gender fates’. This can be seen in fewer girls than boys choosing STEM subjects at school, the dominance of men in trades occupations and women in early childhood roles, the predominance of women choosing to work part-time hours, and persistent sex discrimination in the workplace.
